Stevo claims broadcasters “pay hardly any money” to broadcast games

Super League and Championship TV coverage IMG

There is a lot of talk about the next TV deal for rugby league which is vital for the future of the sport.

Speaking about this, Stevo suggested that broadcasters “pay hardly any money” to broadcast games.

“Why has it taken so long? We brought in this IMG company to make sure that we’re going in the right direction. And yet, we’re halfway through the season, and they’re still saying, we’re nearly there,” he said on the Eddie and Stevo podcast.

“And how many broadcasters are they saying? The ones that we have now, to my opinion, is they don’t pay hardly any money to broadcast these other games.

“All I’m saying is that, you know, deep down, if you really, really look at it, can you blame Sky TV saying, ‘well, we’re not going to give you as much as we did last year or the year before’ etc etc.

“They keep saying, ‘oh we’ve got multiple broadcasters’. All right let’s let’s just sit back and see who they are and what are they paying.”
